The sun is shining. Out come the boats! Small, big, blue, wooden, etc. Let's take a little ride on a lake in Brussels!

Piece of advice for all you hopeless romantics, there's nothing like a heart-to-heart boatride, to make her fall for you. If you prefer a family outing, it's also possible.For the less adventurous ones, no worries life jackets are provided if necessary.

Bois de la Cambre

After the renovation of the banks and the restoration of the Chalet Robinson, all that is left is the boats! There is an admiral fleet count of 50 boats, to be used with the family or your significant other. The Chalet Robinson plays it up just like the boats in New York's central park.

The crafts are accessible to the public from April up to October, every day from 12 pm for 15 euro an hour or 10 euro for a half hour. The schedule will be determined in accord with the unpredictable weather. Let's cross our finger for a nice summer!

Etangs Mellaerts

Chalet Robinson is not the only address in Brussels were you can rent boats. The "Etangs Mellaerts" (Mellaerts Ponds) are open to the public for rides in boats and pedalos.
